SOUND AND VISION PROJECT

Some famous musicians as "David Bowie"; "Pink Floyd" are there being tributed. In the Making Of ; the sceneries feature creative installations being the unique ephemeral 3-D models generated from emulated server's motors into the Metaverse, A selection of AMONN albums are being treated to provide an historical illustration of epochs, sustained by the previous original music edited for iTunes, Spotify, Amazon.com and more... The VIDEO productions do serve as a reference and an archive to the promotion of AMONN and Shangrilla-Dolls Label. Some goodies will be proposed later on to feature by thematics, as a unique collector.
VIDEO-MUSICS MAKING OF:
A theatrical inspiration mix of British Punch and Judy and French Guignol affirmed the use of virtual 3-D elaborated characters having each a personality their own and shall remind The Comic Opera. In the satyrical show ; the episodes feature an awareness generally told to the adults but the entertainment is elaborated to please the children by the talent of the puppet-master. The way the camera motion does capture the band players has this fluid and modern capability reminding TV series style and LUMA movements*. It could be seen such an instar to Gorillaz and Daft-Punk Animes but is genuine and different. Using Venitian masks ; revealing moreover Russian, German and Italian antic decorations ; details always initiate the audience with a standing knowledge.
The concept would define a public image no more limited by the conveniences or imitations imposed to us ; conformist and normative, where the individualism became the subjective property of some group or tribe emulated. A promulgated abusive consumerism allied to the mass-socialization ; a determinism set from the alienation of what was the most precious and rare ; where the talent had soon become a downgrade of the unique and existential : pre-formatting our daily reality into a Kafkaian methamorphosis ; a shameful living grotesque absurdity, reflecting : a flavorless nature and a zombiesque spirit.
-"The Monarchic Art of Appearance": Each person sees what you appear to be, only a few would feel what you are. This little number of individuals wouldn't dare to oppose themselves to the large group of people, they do hold the State in majesty to support it and won't forward any opposition. Because the "vulgar" is found itself being such a higher estimate ; convinced by the overall appearences and by the issue of all affairs. Into our world, remains only the "vulgar" ; consequently the "small number" never finds its place in there. -Niccolò Machiavelli- The Prince.
- "Nature of the Art": Any art or film not being traditional is just a copycat -Luis Buñuel-
- "About AMONN": "The true contact between beings is only established by the mute presence, by the apparent non-communication, by the mysterious and speechless exchange that resembles the inner prayer" -Emil Cioran-
- "About Shangrilla-Dolls World": "Sometimes people do not want to hear the truth because they do not want their illusions destroyed"- Friedrich Nietzsche-
